That blew my mind- the notion that most people who play games are male is just flat wrong.
Gamer girl right here! So the next time someone says sexism in video games doesn’t matter because video games are only played by men*, tell them to shut the FUCK UP.
*I’ve seriously heard this argument before.
Middle-aged women are actually the fastest growing demographic for video games. Farmville and Bejeweled have ushered in a new age of casual gamer. And as more and more women learn how much they like basic video games, a decent amount of them will decide to try PC and console games. (And then a portion of them will end up like me, up too late playing WoW, Diablo, and Tropico. Horde HOLLAAAAA)
